Unity and plurality is one of the important issues in the history of political philosophy, tendency of political philosopher towards each of which can influence all aspects of his political philosophy. Throughout history, political philosophers have raised different ideas in dealing with these two issues. The status of Peripatetic political philosophers like Farabi, Avicenna and Khwajeh Nasiruddin Tusi in the history of Islamic philosophy directed us to explore the issue and the political aftermaths in peripatetic political philosophy. Although Peripatetic political philosophers underscore the need for unity in political life, they have not shown any interest in embracing plurality which can be based upon their principles; in cases where they have dealt with it, they normally observed elimination of plurality from utopia rather than the acceptance. Besides, when components of Unitarianism and pluralism are examined in peripatetic political philosophy, signs of Unitarianism are totally seen in such a way that, they in dealing with different political issues, have proceeded to have the unity concerned in political community which is finally materialized.
